We discuss the use of the Mechatronics Control Kit from Mechatronic Systems, Inc. for control education and research. The Mechatronics Control Kit can be configured with several distinct plants, including a simple DC motor, an inertia wheel pendulum and a Pendubot. The digital electronics are fully integrated and include a Texas Instruments DSP development system, the TMS320C6711 DSK Board (a DSP board with parallel port interface), a PWM output/optical encoder input data acquisition daughter board, a PWM amplifier, and power supplies. We discuss the hardware and software interface and outline a set of experiments that can be performed using this system
